Hi all ! It has been a while. Hope all is well. Thank you Jules for your message. I really nice to know how much people care on this site. Things are bad, real bad. difficult child is now 14 and in 7th grade. He is going thru typical teen behavior & his Gfgness is over the top. He is currently suspended from school for being belligerent & disrespectful to his English teacher. They have clashes since day one. He feels picked on and she feels disregarded and disrespected. Many meetings and conferences and he just won't stop. He is now seeing his therapist weekly. He takes no blame and makes every excuse. He also lost out on his class trip which was awesome. He is grounded at home for one week. Unplugged and in the house. He is so nasty and deliberately trying to pick a fight. He says we overreact & it's no big deal. I'm just feeling so sad and defeated as usual.
